Blue Room Sessions


The ANU Community Music Centre hosts four Blue Room Sessions events each year, each consisting of up to three concerts. Applicants can apply to perform in a concert held in the ANU School of Music’s blue room, the Big Band Room. This concert series welcomes and showcases ACT musicians of all ages (6 and up) and provides the necessary performing experience for the developing musician. Ticket entry to the concerts is by gold coin donation to the Friends of the School of Music.


There is a 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm, and 7:30 pm concert per session. See below for session dates:
